North Riding is a residential area of Randburg which, in turn, is part of Johannesburg. The area used to be known for its stables and equestrian pursuits but it is now a busy residential area.

The area got its name from one of the subdivisions of Yorkshire, England, going back hundreds of years.

Accommodation in North Riding

North Riding is serviced by two main roads; Witkoppen Road and Malibongwe Drive. The Dome concert venue is nearby.
